Posted in: Ex-adviser brought ¥20 mil in cash to Japan in casino scandal See in context

The bribe was only part of it. My guess is the remainder of the 22.5 million was spent on entertainment expenses. Would be interesting if investigators followed the trail but these things in Japan usually get buried pretty fast.

I think trying to bite off a finger is a sure sign he is sane and is trying to avoid punishment. I believe he knows what he is doing. Hope this doesn't sway the court.

You could turn this around and ask women if they would choose to date a man with no job / money. I bet many wouldn't.

Mistook Santa on his way home for a missile. Slightly somewhat understandable with everyone expecting Kim's Xmas present to arrive.

Kinda a bit far out isn't it. One year. In the meantime just imagine your desktop pc is it - cause that is what it kind of looks like to me. Certainly won't fit under the tv.

Ho Ho Ho. I'm starting to believe NK has a sense of humor. Of course, Trump would like nothing better than a rocket in his stocking for Christmas. NK should be very wary of this president during impeachment / elections. He's unlike others.

Abe should take of the gloves. Kim mark 3 is a very fat tyrant with a bad haircut running a crappy little poor country no one really cares about.

Abe shouldn't panda (sorry - couldn't resist) to Pooh bear. If he wants honey from the world he should improve human rights at home.

Sounding like she and the rest of her puppets aren't planning to go quietly. They a d their masters are just hoping the protests fade away, which they won't. Expect more violent protests in order to get rid of them. I predict the army will take over in 3-6 months.

Posted in: Japan may slide toward recession as Abenomics impact fades See in context

Should have at least tried raising (by law) the pitiful minimum wages ages ago. More young people would have had more money to spend. Would also have increased labor participation, immigration and inflation. But no... round after round of the same old stimulus packages (pork-barrel spending) together with tax cuts for companies helping keep the LDP in power while effectively burying the future generation in a grave of debt.

What can they learn?

when the heat and humidity are unbearable

Well, I just don't see how it can work. The crowds will just add to it. Some people will no doubt die and then what... carry on?

Posted in: England, Boks meet in a RWC final not for the faint-hearted See in context

Agreed. Hopefully they'll be a few tries and no cards but that's probably wishful thinking. Probably be more like a brawl. See pic at top again.

Posted in: Japan's beer shipments to S Korea dive 99.9% in Sept See in context

Japan's beer shipments to South Korea plummeted 99.9 percent in September from a year earlier to 588,000 yen

Does that mean they were buying 588,000,000 yen (went from 100 to 0.1)?

Anyway, silver lining. More J-beer available during RWC. Wouldn't like to run out.

So what is she threatening. Military intervention, Internet controls, a future police state with no real democracy. Not exactly very appealing. No wonder they want to protest.

In the past NK has been able to come away from talks with concessions of one sort (aid etc.) or another. I think that's probably their expectation. Kim will be displeased. Wouldn't want to be one of his negotiators.

Logic of benching Leitch is kind of sound but I still have the feeling they are saving him for Scotland. This isn't really the must win game.

Don't forget it's all in the name of scientific research. I still find it hard to comprehend how blatant the lie was and how Japanese went along with it or outright believed it. Someone should research that.

Rugby n Coke. Should have stuck to the rum n coke. Wonder if they will run tests on the rest of the team. Bet they will want to avoid that. Don't really get the lame apologies - Sorry for causing trouble.... Stop repeating that. No trouble for anyone except you.
